I have seen a table somewhere that shows what governments
a civilization prefers/dislikes.

If this has been posted, I can not find it.

Could someone direct me to it? Also what are the
effects of a civ in their preferred gov't?

Thanks in advance.:scan:

if you are in a shunned government what happens? does it effect your production, research, war ability, anything?

I believe that the whole shunned/preferred government only affects the diplomatic relations with AI. If you have the shunned government of the enemy, then the relations would be colder and with preferred warmer. I have never noticed any other differences. Or to speak the truth not even that...

Don't think it makes any difference to your own game. The AI probably won't choose the shunned government and maybe the USA doesn't trade with commies etc

It doesn't have anything to do with AI relations.

Read the editors help file.

I think it would be much closer to reality again, if Civ3 had Dictatorship (or Military Junta), Theocracy as idealogy ruling (along with Communism, where Communism ideas rule) and Oligarchy to add to the existing:

Despotism
Monarchy
Republic
Communism
Demorcacy

:rolleyes:

Well - I said it already - IMHO a "Social engineering" panel like in SMAC will be perfect !!

Ok, it says,

"Determines which government type the selected civilization disdains. If a government type is selected, the civilization will avoid this government type at all costs, and if it is forced to operate under this government type, it will immediately switch to another government type as soon as another government type becomes available."


And for favorite government it says,

"Determines which government type the selected civilization favors. If a government is selected, the civilization will immediately switch to this government type as soon as it becomes available."

Hmmm another thing I have learnt from these boards... :D

That explains a lot then - so basically the AI when playing Zulu will stay in Despotism? That explains a lot then...

I noted these too, but for some reason these values don't seem to mean much. In all games I had, the AI civs spend most of the time in Democracy, and only swap governments when they are in a lenghty war.

Ditto. I think there is something going wrong with this one.
